WHAT’S INCLUDED IN MY 2024 ICELAND ELOPEMENT PACKAGES?
On top of capturing beautiful, organic moments, here’s what’s included in all of my Iceland elopement packages!
01. ICELAND ELOPEMENT PLANNING HELP
As your Iceland elopement photographer, I’ll support you through every step of the planning process. From answering logistical questions to ensuring your elopement experience is filled with things important to you and your partner, I’ll be your shoulder to lean on!
02. CUSTOMIZED ICELAND ELOPEMENT GUIDE
After you book an Iceland Elopement Package that’s perfect for you and your partner, I’ll create and send you a customized Iceland Elopement Guide. It’ll be full of elopement inspiration, local activities, and helpful tips that will help make elopement planning stress-free!
03. UNLIMITED ICELAND ELOPEMENT PLANNING ASSISTANCE
Are you stressed about securing a ceremony location, vendors, and permits? You won’t have to worry about any of that when you book one of my Iceland Elopement Packages! I will assist you with finding and securing a ceremony location(s), sourcing trusted and talented sustainable vendors, and acquiring permits.
04. CUSTOM PLANNING AND COORDINATION OF YOUR ICELAND ELOPEMENT TIMELINE
Organization is my love language! I believe in transparency through the entire elopement process, from start to finish. I’ll ensure you and your partner always know what’s happening, especially on your elopement day! I’ll create, coordinate, and deliver an Iceland Elopement timeline ahead of your big day to ensure your experience goes off without a hitch!
05. ICELAND LOCATION SCOUTING
Iceland is a popular tourist destination with unpredictable weather year-round. When you invest in one of my Iceland elopement packages, I’ll work hard to scout locations in advance, keeping your elopement dreams in mind. I’ll research and visit locations to ensure they are safe and operational and also have secret, private ceremony spots ready to go in my back pocket for more intimate, off-the-grid experiences! If unexpected severe weather or closures do occur, I have backup locations ready to go, so your elopement goes off without a hitch!
06. CUSTOM PHOTO SHOT LIST
I want you and your partner to be able to be present in every single moment of your wedding day. Before your elopement, I plan out a photo shot list that captures all the big and important moments of your elopement experience (like first looks, wedding parties, and, of course, the “I Dos”)! I also leave a little wiggle room in my list to capture the sweet, in-between, and organic moments that make you and your partner’s love so special.
07. TEN SNEAK PEEK PHOTOS WITHIN 48 HOURS OF YOUR ELOPEMENT DAY
I know couples are always excited to relive their elopement experience in the immediate days following! If you book one of my Iceland elopement packages, I will ensure you receive about ten sneak peek photos to keep close or share with family and friends within 48 hours of your elopement!
08. CUSTOMIZED ICELAND ELOPEMENT PHOTO ALBUM
With every Iceland elopement package, couples can add on a uniquely curated album of their wedding photos to be printed, bound, and passed on from generation to generation. The album will include all the best snapshots from your elopement and show the story of your celebration from start to finish. Whether you keep it on your coffee table as a conversation piece or store it in its luxurious linen box for safekeeping, there’s nothing more special than having a tangible piece of your love story.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST ICELAND ELOPEMENT PACKAGES
There are many important factors to consider when choosing which Iceland elopement package is best for you and your partner. My biggest advice when choosing one of my Iceland elopement packages is to dream big!! Eloping in Iceland with the love of your life is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! It’s your most adventurous date EVER, and I’m here to help you pick the best investment into the celebration of your love story.
01. ACTIVITIES AND LOCATIONS
The most important factor when choosing the best Iceland elopement package is how many activities and locations you and your partner want to experience during your elopement. If you’re going to take advantage of all the beauty and fun experiences Iceland offers, I encourage you to allow plenty of time for fun and enjoyment without rushing.
I encourage couples to intentionally slow down and take in the day, moment by moment. A meaningful pace is a huge part of what I bring to elopements! I’m flexible and happy to split my Full-Day elopement package into two days! That’s 12 hours of photography spread across two days to allow us to take in every moment and optimize the best light and weather conditions for photos!
As I mentioned before, the weather in Iceland is unpredictable year-round. I recommend blocking off a few days for you and your partner’s elopement. That way, we can move your elopement to another day if severe weather does occur. If light rain, a little fog, or a delicate dusting of snow does happen, I encourage all my couples to embrace the beauty of mystical Iceland! Rain, mist, fog, and snowflakes can enhance a photo shoot, especially in Iceland, making for a super dreamy and magical experience.
03. TIME OF DAY | PHOTOGRAPHY TIME
Sunrise, Sunset, or both!? It’s up to you and your partner to decide whether you want an enchanting vow ceremony at Sunrise, a magical first dance at Sunset, or both! I value flexibility and creativity, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to your elopement experience. I’m happy to spread 12 hours of photography over two days or do a straight 12 hours in a single day! The time of day and duration of your elopement depends on the locations and activities you choose.

EXCITING, INTENTIONAL EXTRAS
01. INVESTING IN THE ENVIRONMENT
Booking an Iceland elopement package with The Organic Moment is an investment into your love story and the environment. With each elopement package I book, I plant new trees during your elopement month to celebrate your love!

If you want to celebrate your love with a completely sustainable elopement, I’ll create a customized elopement guide, complete with all the ways you and your partner can make your elopement experience sustainable. From renting your dress instead of buying, staying in an eco-friendly Airbnb, and hiring sustainable vendors, I’ll help interweave intentional, environmentally-conscious choices into your elopement experience! During your elopement, we’ll also practice the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace and leave all locations better than we found them!
03. A FRIENDLY TOAST
The night before your elopement, we’ll meet up, toast a tasty beverage, and get to know each other in real life!
04. MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST FOR GENERATIONS
I’m excited to offer a physical, uniquely curated elopement photo album with each elopement package. In addition, I offer prints, extra albums, and linen print boxes for purchase.
